YC Athletics Hall of Fame Inducts Three at Homecoming 2012
At the second annual Hall of Fame luncheon, held October 12, York College inducted Hub Foster, Don Moomey ’59, and Bruce Tandy ’67 into the Athletics Hall of Fame.
Each of these men represents a different element of sports history at York College. Foster is one of the longest living supporters of athletics at YC. For decades, he was the unofficial voice of the Panthers, as he traveled with teams and attended home games, delivering the play-by-play and wrap ups to local media.
